Book Description

This is no fairy tale…

Haunted by nightmares of a black dog, sick to death of my mind-numbing career and heart-numbing fiancé, I impulsively walked out of my life—and fell into Faerie. Terrified, fascinated, I discover I possess a power I can't control: my wishes come true. After an all-too-real attack by the animal from my dreams, I wake to find myself the captive of the seductive and ruthless fae lord Rogue. In return for my rescue, he demands an extravagant price—my firstborn child, which he intends to sire himself…

With no hope of escaping this world, I must learn to harness my magic and build a new life despite the perils—including my own inexplicable and debilitating desire for Rogue. I swear I will never submit to his demands, no matter what erotic torment he subjects me to…

3.0 out of 5 stars I want more... February 15, 2013
By FaeRhi
Format:Kindle Edition
I must have more of this series... not only because it is a good book, but because, by the time the book ends, the story seems to only be getting started.

Gwynn is completely bored out of her skull with her life (boring job, on her way to becoming a trophy wife not allowed to speak her mind, etc) and it doesn't take long for her to leave it completely, driving away without a true destination in mind. But she finds herself at The Devil's Tower, rumored to be magical. She takes refuge for the night at a nearby B&B. The next day, as she wanders the grounds of the Tower, she feels compelled to perform a ritual - though only the reader recognizes it as such. To Gwynn, this is simply an act of saying "I'm here."

It immediately transports her to another world. Brighter, bolder colors, beautiful scenery - in her words "Disney Ireland." When she wishes for something (such as water or bird song) and it shows up or happens - but not without consequence. And that is a huge part of this book - consequence.

One of my favorite facets of Rogue's Pawn is the communication between Gwynn and the Fae. She can communicate with some of them telepathically, which she's not used to, so therefore she's "yelling" most of the time, having all the rest glare at her and tell her to "turn the volume down". Also, she doesn't speak the same language as them, yet she's able to understand what they're trying to say. A perfect example of this is when a particularly distasteful fairy informs Gwynn that she hopes that everyone votes to kill her (Gwynn) in the most painful way possible. Gwynn replies, "Well, that's honest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waiting for the next June 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this and hope there are more to come. Both the hero and heroine were extremely flawed, and even a bit awful at first, but over the course of the story I found myself rooting for them.

I'm a fantasy lover. I love a big long sweeping fantasy that you can sink your teeth in and Rogue's Pawn does not disappoint. But this isn't your every day run-of-the-mill fantasy story. Dragons, check. Magic, check. Hot guys, check. BUT - it's different. I like different. It's different enough to make you sit up and take notice. The worldbuilding is excellent. It's not the Faerie I think of when I think of that place. It has a cast of colorful people who are intriguing. Who keep you guessing. And we never quite know who's an ally and who's an enemy. I love that sort of mysterious storytelling.

The characters are well-drawn. The voice is smooth and engaging. I was immediately pulled in and thought I would read this as I got to it. But I was wrong. I was immediately pulled under the spell of Lady Gwynn and Rogue. I couldn't stop reading. I found that after I stopped reading the book, the characters and the story lingered with me long after. Even after reading the last page I was like, "WHAAA?? More." Like a kid throwing a tantrum. I wanted more! More story! I loved Starling and Liam (the sexy human officer who teaches Gwynn self defense and has a little smoochy time with her). In fact, I really want to see Liam again. I loved him so. I don't know why. But he's the kind of guy I'd fling myself at in a heartbeat. Anyway... great story, intriguing plot and the story ends with lots of unanswered questions inviting the read to beg for more. Which of course I did. And am thrilled to hear there will be another story. Hoorah!

4.0 out of 5 stars fun and face paced January 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
So, this a really interesting story. You have a college professor with a PhD and scientist, who almost literally falls into Faerie. HA! It's almost ironic when things begin to unravel, the ish hits the fan and things get crazy.

I like Jennifer as the main character. She is smart, sassy, strong willed, and is willing to fight for her survival. At some points in the story, I feel sorry for her. Other points, I'm trying to not to strangle her and then most of the time I want to cheer her on!! She is in a complicated position as she is now owned by a man in Faery who isn't such a nice tinker bell sorta fairy. And to make it worse, he wants nothing more than to break her spirit so she will do his bidding blindly.

The world building of this story is probably my favorite part. The way things were created made the story so cool. It's an interesting concept with a pretty unique plot line, and though there were some parts I was disappointed in, there were a lot of parts I really liked. It's such a fun way to begin a series and I have some good objectives that the next book will be better and even more if a thrill ride.

I don't think I can completely characterize this story as romance, as it's not really romance-y but it's definitely in the urban fantasy chats gory. And even though there are some gruff scenes and darker moments, I still enjoyed the ride. I really do look forward to book two! And if you're in for a ride and a transporting to a whole new world, I will definitely recommend this one for you!! 4 PAWS from me! I can't wait for book two!

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
